Pet Pals rescue column: Week of Oct. 26

October 27, 2016
Fort Myers Beach Bulletin, Fort Myers Beach Observer

This pair needs a home

This is the story of two beautiful dogs named Doc (7-year-old Catahoula male) and Sugar Bear (10-year-old female white Husky). I received a call from a lady who moved to this area after losing their previous home with her husband and two very friendly dogs. They had to rent a hotel, which doesn't allow pets, and wanted to ensure Doc and Sugar Bear were safe. She asked me to find a place to put them in boarding for a month, hoping she'd find a place soon enough to get them back. Unfortunately, she's still living in the hotel. Now, we have the dogs and I have to say they are the sweetest and the best behaved dogs I have met in a long time. They are very well socialized, in great health, and friendly with other dogs and people.

We have to get them fostered/adopted together. They've lived together since puppies. We want to respect that bond. They are fully vetted, microchipped and fixed. Sugar Bear was saved from an abusive home when she was a puppy and Doc was also found as a puppy as a stray. They are both stunning dogs and because of their maturity would settle very easily! If you'd like to meet these beautiful and friendly dogs, please call 239-281-0739.

Fynn loves all pets

Fynn wants to introduce himself to everyone he sees. He loves all dogs, small or large. This little guy is between 1 and 2 years old, found on the edge of a busy highway after Matthew's rampage. Fynn was a lost soul, looking for his home. We are not sure what happened to him but couldn't leave him there. He has been very well socialized and can go anywhere.

This little guy rides great in the car and loves to walk. He is in foster care right now with other dogs and everyone is getting along. Fynn is so affectionate, so cute. A very well adjusted young pup with a great heart. If you are interested in meeting him, please fill out the application at

Hershey's a sweet kiss

This little guy is Hershey; he's a well-mannered, sweet boy, only 1. years old, who ended it up in a Shelter on death row through no fault of his own. He was so scared, he couldn't go in adoption. It is very hard for these little guys with those loud noises. He is now in boarding and doing just fine. Hershey came around right away as soon as he saw he could play with other little dogs. That is so sweet how the pack works.

He has a great, shiny coat, is low key and not hyper at all. He's the right size as well, under 10 pounds. To meet him, please call 239-281-0739.

Monti and his long legs

We thought Monti was going to be just a "normal" Chihuahua until I met him. What a surprise! I never saw a Chi with such long legs. Monti is about 3 years old and given away by his parents to very doubtful people who just didn't care about him, letting him run around in the street until he was trapped by an officer who brought him to the Shelter. There, he was very scared and could not wait to get out. Just like that, he was going to be put down!

Now he is in a safe place and in boarding, however, it is not the best place for him. He needs a forever home. He's adorable on car rides, looking out the window like he's on patrol. This little guy is very funny and that little pink nose is adorable. He zips to one place then zips again to the next. He's a fun one! He likes to play with other dogs, a true social butterfly.

In loving memory

This is the story of a senior cat who appeared one day at the doorstep of one of our volunteers and foster parents, Mark and Helena. This sweety was not in good health but was very affectionate, and we could see he needed attention.

Within a few days we got a call from a lady who thought it was her cat but then she told us it was a "he," and after looking at the Vet record it says it was a "she!" We were confused. She had moved on and had left him behind and was trying to reconnect. Angel was his name. Angel passed away last week. She stayed several months with Helena and we did everything to make her happy. She was good with dogs and loved her big sister, Shatzi. It has been very difficult for Helena and Mark to let their beloved Angel go. She is buried now in their yard where she was so happy. So long, Angel!

Come out to our Oct. 29 benefit

Finally the fist event of the season is here: Saturday in Villa Santini Plaza, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

We are so pleased to be a part of the Halloween contest this year, and four of our volunteers will be there to judge a fun costume doggie party! Dianne, Helena, Joan and Jackie are very dedicated, and are part of the Rescue, so please come and say hello to them.

Of course we will have Lulu, our little Rescue mascot, and another furry friend for you to meet, available for adoption. We will have some great prizes, including gift certificates to restaurants, jewelry, and this year we will be offering some homemade mango jam and chutney made from the kitchen of our friend, Wendy, and homemade bread from Rori and Rick that will go very well with the jam! See you there!
